Times like these never seemed to click with me for a long time. The lyrics were amazing but I just didn't like it as much. I now like it after all these years.

That'd be I'll Stick Around. I had never really gotten into that song until I saw some fresh live versions.

Best of You. Loved it for a week, hated it for a long time, love it again now because it's easy to put on a good show with it.

Wasting Light is an amazing record. Is the best album that has been released of this year!

I think that the track that took a while to like me is resolve. I don't know why. Anyway. Is my 2 favorite band. (the first is Nirvana) I love it so much, Dave is a genius and I'm waiting years for their coming to Chile. Will be my best day in my life.

I didn't take to Stacked Actors. It's grown on me over the years and I find myself singing along when I hear it. I love to see Foo live. They rock hard enough and the lyrics are genuine so that I will always have fun and be smiling, no matter what set they are playing.

What's not to like about MIA? A guy talking about going MIA with his gal? Yeah, you're right, sounds like total bunk. ~ NOT! Dave the man, and I can only imagine how much fun it might be to go MIA with the likes of Dr G. http://bbs.foofighters.com/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif Don't know if this ol' gal could handle it, but wouldn't mind finding out the HARD way!!http://bbs.foofighters.com/images/smilies/wink.gif[/url]

I honestly can't remember what songs it took me a while to like, because once I love them I can never understand why I didn't in the first place!

But I think it took me a fair while to give M.I.A a good listen, and I'd heard so many amazing things about Aurora that I didn't quite get what was so great about it at first.

Of all the ESPG tracks the only one I still don't really like is Summers End, but no doubt in a few listens time that will change

Generator, I didn't like the talkbox in the beginning but now I really enjoy it.

Best of you, it didn't sound like what I was expecting but it grew on me.

My Hero - Was listening to The Is Nothing Left to Loose alot when I picked up The Colour and the Shape. Only got it for Monkey Wrench if I'm honest so I didn't pay much attention to any of the other tracks. then a mate of mine told me to listen to Everlong which I loved so I gave the whole album a chance. After numerous listens, My Hero jumped out as my favourite song and is still my fave Foos track - love it live.

Ahh, that would be Stacked Actors!

Never gave it a real shot at first, for some reason.

Go figure.
